So apparently New York is upset that the latest installment of Survivor has broken the camps up by race. They’re demanding the show be pulled.
Honestly, I love the idea. I think all reality competition shows should go this route. You could have a lot of fun with it. Imagine a show that pits women against men, teenagers against their parents, cops against drug dealers, families of slain soldiers against captured insurgents, or even the physically challenged versus those with fully functional arms and legs. It would make reality TV a lot more interesting than the sterilized crap that it has become.
I sincerely hope CBS won’t cave to the pressure. I doubt they will. After all, they have already spent the money on production, and the controversy will likely give them their best ratings in a long time.
